Thailand ranked among the 10 best countries for expats

Thailand ranked among the 10 best countries for expats. Annual survey reveals Thailand is growing in popularity with expats. Thailand has been ranked among the top 10 places for expats to live, according to the annual Expat Insider Survey carried out by InterNations. The latest rankings see Thailand move up to 6th place from 8th place in 2022 and 14th place in 2021. Each year, InterNations, a global community for people who live and work abroad, conducts its Expat Insider survey. Now in its tenth year, the survey quizzes over 12,000 expats to generate a ranking of 53 countries across the world. It analyzes factors such as quality of life, ease of settling in, personal finance, and more.

InterNations, the world’s largest expat community with more than 4.8 million members, ranked Mexico (1st), followed by Spain, Panama, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Costa Rica, the Philippines, Bahrain, and Portugal (10th) as the best destinations for expats in 2023. The worst destinations for expats were found to be Kuwait (53rd), Norway, Türkiye, South Korea, Germany, South Africa, Italy, Malta, New Zealand, and Japan (44th). According to the survey’s findings, Thailand ranked 6th place overall and came in 1st in the category of finding affordable housing. The report stated that “for expats, it is easy to afford a comfortable life in Thailand, and they are happy with the leisure options and the friendliness of the local residents.” Thailand was described as the “perfect place for thrifty expats.” The survey found that expats’ money goes a long way in Thailand, with 76% rating the general cost of living positively.
